Is this pan ok for Roast?

OK - I have two large roaster pans my mom bought through out the years. Sometimes I think it might be too big for the small chickens I cook for my husband and I.

I also have one of these pans, or at least I think it resembles this one. I don't really use it much. i have a lot of glassware types of pans that I use in the oven - have many different sizes.

But anyways, can I use the pan in the link to roast a chicken in? I mean I don't see any reason why I couldn't.

Amazon.com: 9 x 13" Nonstick Baking pan cake roast lasagna: Kitchen & Dining

It says cake, roast, and lasagna, so I don't see why not. I often cook chicken in a similar pan.

Do you put it on the stove after to make some gravy?

I want to try a smaller pan for roasting a chicken since I'm thinking maybe it's not wise to cook it in a big AS@ roasting pan that will fit 2-3 small chickens LOL.

This pan will work fine. A smaller pan will also work, but not much smaller. I use a quarter-sheet pan for small chickens. It's plain aluminum and 9"x13"x1" deep.

If you have an oven-proof saute pan, you could use that to roast a small chicken.

I generally transfer the drippings to a saucepan (using a little water and spatula to get everything from the baking pan) to make gravy.

I roast mine in a cast iron skillet--works for making the gravy, too.

I would think you would end up missing out on some of the good bits in the first pan.

that pan has a non stick coating, and would not create sucs for you to deglaze into gravy...other than that it'll be fine for single chicken roasting.

The stuff that sticks to the bottom of a pan that you deglaze to remove.
